The ASDC team look forward to welcoming employees from science and discovery centres, science engagement organisations and STEM professionals from around the world to this esteemed annual event, which will be held online on 24 and 25th November 2021.
Throughout the conference there will be discussion tables and bespoke workshop style sessions for ASDC members and the wider STEM community, bringing together inspiring practice and new ideas for 2022 and beyond.
This two-day virtual event will focus on Sustainable Futures, with keynote speakers for each of the sub themes:
Sustainable Futures - Resilience reflecting on the lessons we have learnt and looking to the future of science centres and museums
Sustainable Futures - Diversity how our sector reaches towards greater diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility
Sustainable Futures - Environment the outcomes of COP26 and our next steps together as a sector
Virtual and accessible
This year’s ASDC conference will allow more delegates than ever before to attend with a new ticket option for Science Centres and Museums to invite employees from different departments, opening up access to conference sessions and networking opportunities for your whole team. To ensure the conference is accessible to all, the event is being hosted using the online venue platform Hopin, which allows delegates to use captioning.
Celebrating and socialising
Making the most of a virtual event, and to encourage teams to get together where possible, the ASDC team will be hosting the first ever ASDC virtual quiz! Delegates are invited to gather together to enjoy the final inspirational key note speaker and then get competitive for the interactive quiz as we live link up with centres around the country. Get ready to play for highly desirable prizes and re-create the fun, networking and social celebration of being together for the ASDC conference.
